Mens Christmas Gift Guide & GIVEAWAY

When it comes to Christmas time, I've gotta say that I'm pretty good at buying gifts for those I love.  Since its Black Friday, I thought I'd share my pick of the gifts out there for the men in our lives so that you can snap up some bargains and Christmas gifts for your loved ones.  There's this blog post and giveaway and also my new Pinterest Board for all of my favourite gift guide ideas for men!

First stop is fashion.

I don't know about your boys but my hubby and my dad tend to wait all year then they do one big shop around Christmas time.  They like to buy in bulk which isn't particularly great on the purse strings but it means that they're looking for quality pieces that are going to last.

Christmas is the perfect time to treat them to some knitwear or a smart shirt for all of those nights out between Christmas and New Year, a warm coat to keep out the winter chill or some clothes to lounge around in munching on mince pies.

Here are my perfect menswear picks this year:


Click the arrows left and right to scroll through my choices and hit the social media symbols to share with your friends and family on social media.

Now of course those fashion choices are pretty serious but what about the traditional Christmas jumper?  Tipsy Elves have got you sorted and after checking out their jumpers for my own Mr, they are the only place I'd recommend to buy a Christmas Jumper or Christmas Onesie/Jumpsuit from for a man or woman in your life this Christmas.  There's some funny ones, some deceptive ones and some down right cheesy ugly ones.  They're all lots of fun and perfect to give as a gift to wear on the big day around the dinner table, especially if you've got a member of the family who is a bit of a joker.


Christmas Jumpers
Aside from the designs, I've got to say that my favourite thing about the Tipsy Elves Christmas jumpers is that they don't sacrifice on quality just because they're a novelty, fun item.  The jumpers are superb quality and will keep the wearer really warm over the cold months.  The Tipsy Elves site has a really good size guide so you can easily work out what the right size will be, plus the items fit true to size.


Tipsy Elves Snowman Jumper*
I have a Frosty the Nose Thief Christmas Jumper to give away to one of you.  You can find out how to enter at the end of this post!


Once you have the menswear sorted, my next Christmas present suggestion would be for some accessories and footwear.  There's something for every man whether they're the sporty type who would love some trainers or the workaholic who'd appreciate a smart tie.

My picks are below:


I'm sure you'll agree with me when I say that I like my hubby to smell good so aftershave fragrances are top on my list of things to get him.

Viktor and Rolf Spicebomb
This year, I'll be treating him to a big bottle of Viktor and Rolf Spicebomb as it is his current favourite and the scent he wore on our wedding day.

There are so many fragrance gift sets available for men and I'd really suggest buying those as you can often get a really good deal as well as complimentry products in the set.

Another option is to get a male beauty gift set.  You could pick up a shaving gift set or take the opportunity to introduce your man to some skincare!

Here are my favourites that are available now:


As well as fragrance and clothing, I'd recommend buying something for a man that he's interested in or will use often whether that's the latest electronic device like an iPad, a really good sound system, an experience day or even something fun like a vintage style game or a coffee table book.


My top picks:




My final gift suggestion is for the coffee lovers out there...


Beanies Coffee*
Beanies have created flavoured coffees in a huge range of different flavours; there's something for everyone.  In my family, we have been enjoying the Irish Cream, Amaretto Almond and Cinder Toffee flavours and loving them but what I like about them the most is that they're syrup free, sugar free and only 2 calories per cup!  Beanies offer instant, like I have here, or ground coffee too.
Beanies have the perfect gift set for any coffee lover called the Beanies Stash Box which contain 9 different 50g jars of flavoured instant coffee.  Plus, you get free delivery with your order, making it so easy to buy this Christmas.

I have one Beanies Stash Box to give away to a lucky reader.

So here's the competition:

There's two prizes up for grabs- 1 Beanies Stash Box and 1 Tipsy Elves Frosty The Nose Thief Snowman Jumper.

The Beanies Stash box prize is open to UK readers ONLY and will be posted direct from Beanies.  The Tipsy Elves prize is open internationally and I will be posting the prize out.

The giveaway will be open until 8th December and the winners will be notified on 9th.  The winner will have 48 hours to get back to me with their delivery address or another winner will be chosen.

In order to enter the giveaway you must follow my blog via Bloglovin and comment below to tell me which prize you would prefer to win (remember if you live outside of the UK, you can win the jumper ONLY).  After that, there are MANY ways to gain additional entries and once you have followed my blog and commented then these options will become available to you.

Best of luck to everyone!
